The International Bar


Where beer and comedy collide. Situated in the heart of Dublin between Temple Bar and Grafton Street. The International Bar, 23 Wicklow Street Dublin, is host to the International Comedy Club.

This famed Dublin public house is over two hundred years old. In 1854 the registered licence holder was John Dunne and in 1886 the pub was sold to the O’Donohoe family and was named the International Bar.

Since then the pub has retained it’s original Victorian decor which includes a wonderfully ornate hand-carved mahogany one-piece reredos. The carvings are of the river gods of Ireland and match in perfectly with the oak barrels and brass taps where once whiskey, porter and wine were served.

And if that isn’t enough for you, they sell drinks and you can watch comedy.
